Ses­sions to be grilled:

Arab Times - - INTERNATIONAL -

US At­tor­ney Gen­eral Ses­sions is ex­pected to be grilled hard in Congress Tues­day over what he knew about con­tacts be­tween the Trump elec­tion cam­paign and Rus­sia af­ter new rev­e­la­tions from the Mueller in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Af­ter Ses­sions re­peat­edly in­sisted in hear­ings this year that he was un­aware of any con­tacts be­tween the cam­paign and Moscow, Democrats on the House Ju­di­ciary Com­mit­tee will be press­ing him over whether he lied in sworn tes­ti­mony.

Ev­i­dence pre­sented by in­de­pen­dent pros­e­cu­tor Robert Mueller in one of his first in­dict­ments last month showed that Ge­orge Pa­padopou­los, a for­eign pol­icy ad­vi­sor to the cam­paign un­der Ses­sions’ charge, sought to ar­range a trip by then-can­di­date Don­ald Trump to Rus­sia and told the cam­paign he was of­fered dirt on Hil­lary Clin­ton by Rus­sian con­tacts.
